Young is a high performance, very high value-for-money D/A converter efficient in managing approximately 384kHz sampling rate and 32 bits resolution (USB input). It showcases a high-speed asynchronous USB input based upon the hiFace innovation, additional established to permit higher sampling rates. An extensive input set (S/PDIF on RCA and BNC, AES/EBU on XLR and optical on Toslink) provides excellent connection flexibility. Despite its cost, Young encompasses a cutting edge innovation for data managing and processing. A high performance oversampling filter, customized on a programmable logic gadget (FPGA) executes minimum-phase filters enhanced for sound quality which permit a really low noise floor. A 32 bits -D/An incorporated circuit is used in a non-conventional mode to permit 768kHz internal operation. The synergy between the DAC IC and the customized oversample allows for extremely low noise floor and THD. The output buffer utilizes an unique functional amplifier with very low noise and THD thanks to its class-A prejudiced output stage. The small size and stylish look of the Young permit a noninvasive positioning in every home.
